Jamf School Self Service for Computers

Jamf School Self Service is a free computer app that students and teachers can use to download apps and profiles that are assigned to them as on-demand. In addition, Jamf School Self Service gives users limited management of their device, such as allowing them to update their operating system. When a computer with Jamf School Self Service is missing, you can enable a helper application called Where's My Mac to lock the device in Lost Mode and optionally play a sound on the device. Once the computer is found, you can disable Where's My Mac, which disables Lost Mode on the device.
